Now available from Chelsea Rialto Studios - an exclusive blu-ray release of Sol Lesser's production of Thornton Wilder's OUR TOWN. This 1940 film stars Martha Scott, William Holden, Frank Craven, Thomas Mitchell, Fay Bainter, Guy Kibbee, Beulah Bondi, Stuart Erwin and Phillip Wood. The music is by Aaron Copland and the film was directed by Sam Wood.
Long in the public domain, OUR TOWN has invariably been available in dupe prints with poor picture and sound. This blu-ray release was transferred from a near-mint original 16mm print. Also included on the blu-ray is a 1952 episode of THE LILLI PALMER SHOW with Lilli's guest Thornton Wilder. This exclusive Blu-Ray release is $20 plus shipping and can be ordered at http://www.chelsearialtostudios.com.
Here's a newly made trailer for OUR TOWN:

I think I have the same one.I have a poor copy on DVD from Focus Film that came out in 2001. Happy to replace it with a much better blu-ray presentation.
